No, not paradox
Forgot to retune radio, ended up listening to Dennis Prager for a while. I try to avoid both the standard Repoofs and the standard Commies; both are globalist. Prager is discussing culture vs politics with Ben Shapiro. Nice calm discussion with some good points.
Prager made a point that seems paradoxical: The hippieshit generation grew up with "clean" and "moral" television like Father Knows Best as our main cultural influence, yet we turned radical. Where did the radical come from? Prager said it came from school.
Hell no. It came from TV. Father Knows Best was NOT typical of 1950s TV. There was an inflection point in 1956, trailing behind the Roy Cohn Coup in 1954. After Cohn and his fag boyfriend Welch conspired to ruin secret fag McCarthy, everything changed in TV. The globalist commie writers who had been unemployed or cautious came roaring back with a PURE VENGEANCE. After 1956 TV looked
the same, but all plotlines were explicitly designed to rip apart Natural Law culture. COMPLEX MORAL CONUNDRUMS formed the core of every story, intended to create cognitive dissonance. All permanent certainties were pulverized.
Plain numerical fact: TV was rare before 1954. Most TV stations went on the air between '54 and '56, and most households got a TV in those years. The pre-Cohn version of TV reached only about 20% of America. So when you say "1950's TV" you're practically speaking about post-56 TV, in other words post-Cohn TV.
The visual aspect of TV changed several years after the plotlines. Before 1959 the people in movies and TV looked like actual Americans. Yeah, they were prettier than real people because nobody wants to look at uglies; but their clothing and hair and behavior were close to reality. After 1959, American and Western Euro TV and movies departed from reality. In real life females are about half the population. In post-59 US/UK/EU movies, females disappeared except for a few "boy-like" mixed-gender entities. Movies and TV were chiefly about males relating intimately with males, which agreed precisely with Roy Cohn's reality. Foreign movies outside US/UK/EU (Egypt, Turkey, Greece, India) continued to reflect normal life. Women were an equal part of life, and women in movies looked like real-life women.
